Joseph Faiveley Beaujolais Villages 2012
Domaine Faiveley is located in France, at the heart of Viticultural Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Historically based in the Côte de Nuits capital, the Faiveley family has progressively extended its domaine and today owns vineyards in the finest climates in Burgundy - Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet, Mercurey and others. The vineyards are very fragmented. The average surface area per appellation is around just 1 hectare. The number of bottles produced for each wine is therefore very limited.
This wine has delicate floral scents on the nose. On the palate, it proves to be solid and firmly structured by the strength of its tannins which give it interesting cellaring potential. Its structure is nicely balanced by the Gamay’s elegance, which gives it a certain complexity and allows it to accompany a wide range of dishes.
